Floodlights replace the sun during nightfall at Four Seasons Golf and Ski Center, keeping the miniature golf courses and batting cages aglow for nighttime visitors. During the summer, guests can wind through miniature fairways that incorporate small-scale replicas of The Statue of Liberty, Niagara Falls, and the world's smallest caddies. During the winter, Four Seasons’ slopes welcome copious amounts of snow to facilitate skiing, snowboarding, and snowtubing. The newly renovated facility also hosts a game room and specialty ice cream shop.
Columbus State Community College’s picturesque Bridgeview course challenges golfers of all skill levels with a par-36, nine-hole arrangement of grassy slopes. Cart-transported rod-swingers can chase dimpled balls through Bridgeview's well-maintained fairways, grass-skirt roughs, and bentgrass greens nestled alongside the serene banks of Alum Creek. To shoot close to the course's par-36 rating, clubbers will have to avoid water hazards and sand bunkers with strictly precise and calculated strokes or bribing the bunkers beforehand. Though not included in this Groupon, golfers can calibrate swings at one of 30 heated and sheltered practice tees located in Bridgeview Golf's driving range.
